Russia qualified for the Davis Cup final by imposing 2-0 doses over Germany in the second semifinal, held in Madrid.
In the challenge to conquer the salad bowl, the Russians will face Croatia tomorrow, who yesterday beat Serbia 2-1 led by Novak Djokovic.
Today there was no need to resort to doubles, because the two Russian singles won their respective matches, also given the absence of Alexander Zverev from the German ranks.
Andrey Rublev (# 5 in the ATP ranking) defeated Dominik Koepfer (# 54) with a score of 6-4, 6-0 in less than an hour, then world # 2 Daniil Medvedev beat Jan-Lennard Struff (# 51) with a double 6-4.
For Russia tomorrow will be the sixth final of the Davis Cup, which they have won twice (2002 and 2006), while for Croatia it is the fourth, with two trophies on the showcase (2005 and 2018).
